The Tigers now have eight wins in the last nine games.
They knocked off the Philadelphia Phillies, 3 to 1, last night at Comerica Park last night.
It was a very good outing for Justin Verlander.
He struck out 10 over eight innings to earn the win.
It was the first time this year that the veteran right-hander has won in back-to-back starts.
Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs and Victor Martinez drove in the other one.
It was a milestone game for closer Francisco Rodriguez,
He picked up career save number 400 last night.
‘K-Rod’ became just the sixth pitcher since 1969 to reach the 400 save mark for their careers.
